Justin is a comic and saw the situation as ironic. If RDA had a sense of humor he would see the irony too. I think if this happened to Lucas he would make a joke about it. For all I know maybe RDA did too. At least I hope so.

I totally agree with you.

I remember RDA talking about it on a convention, I think. Yes, I think he can laught about the situation per se - the problem with these photos is that they're used for a ton of cheap-shot body-shaming comments online which is not nice. They resurface every one or two years and the same thing happens.

Generally, I'm still surprised that people think actors being "normal" people "destroys" their entire childhood *insert eyeroll*.

Additionally, as always Justin didn't credit the source, which irks me even more. Personally, I'm not happy he posted it, either.

That's always a sign you might be in trouble if your dashboard is on fire...

Justine thinks he's a comic. The guy thinks dropping the F and N bomb in every "ghetto speak" filled sentence is funny.

I doubt he even knows what ironic means. dry.gif

As Rhyen said RDA is the only reason Justin has this job and I would think that a lot more respect would be shown to someone who has achieved a hell of a lot more than this talent-less fool will ever achieve.

I can't believe the vitriol expressed here. I realize that RDA is God to some but I don't think the post was meant to be taken negatively. and Justin's comment imo had nothing to do with normal things. Certainly not body-shaming. 'Macgyver' can do anything so there's some humor here. That's it. Again imo. I also feel it's too bad that people get offended so easily and by the most innocuous things. although I can't say I'm surprised. Now I suppose I've offended someone somewhere. Sorry for that. sad.gif

I don't think Justin's post was meant to be offensive. At the same time, it does feel like a stab towards fans and RDA. I can look past that and say it was most likely unintentional.

RDA isn't god, but we do defend him here. smile.gif

You have nothing to apologize for BabyEinstein. People have a right to see what they want how they want. Expressing their opinions is also fine. However whichever way the star intended his post, there is a sense of responsibility when conducting a joke or conveying a message to a general populace of fans who hold the original series close to their hearts.

Look at James Gunn. Director of Guardians of the Galaxy who also found it best to spread "funny" jokes about a number of offensive things before he became successful. They used that against him now and Disney was forced to fire him. Not so funny anymore, right?

Perhaps this too could implicate RDA ever considering an appearance in the reboot. Imagine how uncomfortable that would be for Justin.

I think the issue is more about the origins of the post and what it represents. As has already been mentioned, this post originated as a negative and degrading dig at RDA and has continued to resurface every so often to continue that negative connotation.

Yes you can argue that it's only a joke and lighten up... but it's a joke made in bad taste and feels like it's come from a place of disrespect.
